Million Dollar Lottery Winner Shows Up In 'Scream' Mask To Hide Identity

"I want to get a house".

Lottery winners in the Caribbean country often wear disguises while collecting their prizes due to high levels of crime in the country, and fears that they will be hounded for money by family and friends.

He only did so after lottery officials urged the unknown victor to come forward before the strict 90-day deadline passed.

Identified only as A Campbell, the lottery victor won 158 million Jamaican dollars - or approximately 1.1 million USD - as part of Supreme Venture's Super Lotto.

"My head hurt me for three days because I was thinking so much, [wondering] if what I've been longing for really came true".

The victor, identified only as "A. Campbell" by lottery commission Supreme Ventures, showed up wearing the onscreen murderer's mask, a long grey shirt, and gloves, in a bid to remain anonymous. "I don't beg, I don't borrow", he added.

"Sure enough they wrote me the one dollar cheque and had me hold it up and took the picture", Heep said. "I love to have money", says Mr Campbell. So I'm looking at things that can turn over the money.

He said he plans to start looking for a nice house to buy and expand his business with his winnings.

Campbell took 54 days to claim their prize and the Lotto company was reportedly getting nervous since it was inching 90-day deadline. "I had a belly ache for two weeks, sometimes I feel so much pain I forgot that I won".

It happened with the Supreme Ventures Ltd. Several years ago in the United States, a California man covered his face with the enormous cheque and, last year, a woman in New Hampshire fought in court to keep her identity a secret - and won.
